A Charming Cape Cod

Originally built in 1950, this small Cape Cod had lots of charm, but was in dire need of some 21stcentury updates. Our clients wanted a retreat where they could entertain family and friends and create a welcoming, open space for their grandchildren. Meadowlark took what was a congested group of rooms and opened the floor to accommodate our client’s vision.

The Vision

The heart of a home is often found in the kitchen and secluding this area from other familial gathering spaces creates a disconnect. The current home had several rooms that were not cohesive and created a barrier for guests, as well as the homeowners, to enjoy the home. In addition, this open concept allowed for the maximization of the spectacular views overlooking the neighboring Huron River.

Design & Architecture

Schematic Design

Meadowlark listened and understood the client’s goals and vision and constructed a two-story addition on the back. We added major structural modifications, including a large back deck and large frameless windows. The interior design was bright yet warm, giving the homeowners a sense of comfort and space the home previous previously lacked.

 

Design Development

  • Double door access to back yard with lots of windows
  • Reconfigured fireplace and new sitting areas
  • Addition of new hardwood floori\ throughout
  • Remodeled kitchen and oversized island

The Results

Coupled with a beautiful, open design concept and the manipulation of natural light, this interior remodel offers a warm and natural tone, adding to the experience that is this charming Cape Cod home.
